Reclaiming ripples: Podcast 25 is out!

Welcome to Episode 25 of the Crafternoon Treats crochet podcast: Reclaiming ripples.

In this episode I take you on a little tour of my craft room, all recently reorganised, show you my progress with crochet and knitting projects and chat about some yarny pleasures and my plans for Feb and March! The title alludes to the Seascape ripple blanket that I have had on the go for about 18 months now… it keeps getting put away and forgotten but I am now determined to reclaim and finish those lovely ripples.

Watch the episode here:

 

 

My hand dyed yarn is available at my Etsy shop – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/CrafternoonTreats Discount code for 20% off is PodcastJan17… this will be added to an ADDITIONAL 20% off until January 31st that I will add manually as a refund once I process your order. DO NOT WORRY that the code only gives you the 20% off. You will get the full 40% discount 🙂

This is my latest project using one of my hand dyed yarns – Rubecula, which incorporates the beautiful colours of our dear little Robin. I’m using it to make another shawl while I work out the final pattern for my new shawl ready for testing.

    Morning Kathryn! I’ve been in a real slump lately with my crochet, knitting etc. But watching your podcast has given me the encouragement needed! Love all your projects and your crafting space!

    Wheal Agar on ravelry – Wow Kathryn, thanks for the Kitchener link. I now understand what to do and why. AND I am ready to finish off my sock so will give it a go.
    I also love your stitch markers in Etsy.

    • Crafternoon Treats says:

      Thanks Elaine – I’ve got some new charms so new markers will be going into the shop very soon. Yes, that video is a lifesaver isn’t it? So well explained 🙂
